Post PL: 7 Gravity Age Reply with quote
As this progress level opens, the invention of two key technologies herald humanity's climb to the stars. The gravity induction reactor systematically replaces fusion power as a more efficient source of energy that can be manipulated with great ease. With the use of the mass reactor, world powers explore, divide, and colonize the entirety of the local star system. For the most part, life on the home planet is unchanged.

The second advance of the era brings perhaps the greatest upheavel in history of human civilization. The introduction and intergration of the gravity induction technology leads to the creation of the induction engine, which allows starships to bridge the gap between the stars. Political and economical reorganization occurs as the species spreads far from home.

Projectile firearms are in their last days, as crude energy weapons become available. Powered armor is available to warrios of this age. Personal (melee) weapons enjoy a resurgence, due in large part to a shift in military tactics-armed conflict between individuals seldom occurs on an army scale, but more frequently involves engagements of small units in conditions when ranged are not necessarily effective.

Computer technology links every society, settlement, and outpost of a star system in a single information net, creating an unparalleled and expedient exchange of knowledge and data for business, entertainment, and research.
